Received this tea as one of my mane many custom try me sample i don’t know what to say or think of this one the smell is really really good you can smell the chocolate and the cacao but i can’t find any of the taste when drinking it but at the same time i don’t find it bitter like i do with most black tea so there most be some taste other than tea in it.

i see in the description here 5 minute steep while the Website of Della Terra teas write 2-3 minute i will try it at 5 minute ( one or the other have the wrong info ) maybe the taste will get stronger in hope that it don’t get bitter with that kind of smell i hope to be able to have the taste to go with it

Updates: Following Della Terra Teas advice i was going to try this one with some sweetener ( cane sugar ) but i was out of it so Honey it be ! since it the only other sweet i can take .

The smell was still really nice. With honey in it the cacao taste is stronger, taste kinda like dark chocolate ( with chocolate and cacao i assume that was the purpose ) it my favourite kind so I’m good with it. A weird taste in that cup but that come from my honey .. i was probably really sleeping last time i bought honey it’s some weird flower honey i will have to buy some normal honey when i go for the sugar cane . Was way better that time still have enough to make another cup in my sample will try with the cane sugar.

Thanks for the review. We do suggest a 2-3 minute steep using boiling water on this. Without sugar we notice it has a more cocoa taste, almost like baking cocoa without the bitter. With sugars really brings out the milk chocolate taste.

Bio

Name is Guillaume or William for the english version of it :p

Reading, movies and music are mostly my only hobby ( they take most of my time but lucky me i can drink Tea when doing all of them ! :D) i am a technology addict and at the same time love old thing ( i shave with a straight razor )

Like most people here i suppose tea as become a obsession really fast how can it not be with so many tea and teaware available? it is a conspiracy i say !

Tea lover for a couple of month now it’s the only hot beverage i can drink ( i hate coffee and the like ) thank to having a DT near my house and to Den’s for the 3$ for tea novice

I’m way behind in my tasting note but it will be done ! Bad note from me does not mean the tea was bad i try to explain what i did not like but that just my opinion I’m no expert on tea i like what i like and that all.

I mostly drink green tea i found black tea to be too bitter for me since i don’t put sweetener in anything flavored black tea are ok if they have something already sweet in it

Rooibos and herbal are ok all depended on the flavor they are

I love most white and oolong just have yet to find one i really like

everyone as different taste but there tea for every taste

Location

Near montreal, Canada
